Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.
No matter how small the guest list, weddings are always a big day. And while couples undoubtedly cherish celebrating their love with close family and friends, sometimes the most intimate moments are the most memorable.
For Megan and Tristan Herstol, their most treasured wedding-day memory was just as intimate as Tristan’s proposal at home one Saturday afternoon. Their first look was “very emotional and beautiful,” as Megan puts it, and something they could share between just the two of them. Here’s to a lifetime of just-the-two-of-you moments, Herstols.
